5 course guitar

This is my 5 course guitar. It was made by Marcos Kaiser, a young brazilian luthier. The model follows an original found in mallorca. The original instrument suffered many modifications being transformed in a "chitarra battente".

Yes, that's it on the recording, thanks for listening! I think earlier it was a question about string lenght, or I was too sleepy? Well, just in case, it has 64 cm, and I'm using an aquila nylgut set without bourdons and a high g on the third. On the photos it has nylon strings and a low d on the 4th course.

Nice looking instrument. And a very nice tone (I assume that's the instrument you are playing on the Sanz piece).

What is the string length?

Thanks, yes the laterals, beautiful instrument by the way...all the best

You mean the laterals? 9.3cm next to the neck and 10cm at the bottom.

How thick are the sides of the guitar, if I may ask?

I asked Marcos for some Photos. I would like to see them too!
